These Affiliate Partner Terms (“Affiliate Partner Terms”) are between Notarize and Affiliate Partner (as defined below) (together the “Parties”, and each, a “Party”). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined have the meanings given in the Glossary. These Affiliate Partner Terms require arbitration on an individual basis, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also describe the specific remedies available to you. Please see Sections 13.5 and 13.6 to learn more.
1. General Provisions.
1.1 Applicability. An “Affiliate Partner” is any individual or entity that markets and promotes Notarize’s remote online notarial services and related products and services (collectively, the “Services”) to potential Notarize customers (the “Prospects”) by displaying an Affiliate Link (as defined below) on the Affiliate Partner’s website(s), landing page(s), or software application(s)(in either case and collectively, an “Affiliate Website”) in exchange for a Discount (as defined as below). Notarize hereby engages Affiliate Partner, and Affiliate Partner hereby accepts such engagement, to incorporate into an Affiliate Website, and display, a web address link (URL) provided by Notarize (the “Affiliate Link”) that will direct Prospects to a Notarize website during the Term in accordance with these terms and conditions. By clicking the “I Agree” button or consent tickbox linked to these Affiliate Partner Terms, Affiliate Partner accepts and agrees to be bound by these Affiliate Partner Terms. The effective date is the date that the Affiliate Partner clicks the “I Agree” button or consent tickbox linked to these Affiliate Partner Terms (“Effective Date”).
1.2 Supplements. The “Data Privacy Supplement” located at www.notarize.com/data-privacy-supplement applies to Affiliate Partner.
2. Affiliate Partner Customer Qualification.
2.1 Affiliate Link Submission. Notarize will provide a unique Affiliate Link to the Affiliate Partner for placement on the Affiliate Website. When a Prospect (a visitor to the Affiliate Website) clicks on the Affiliate Link, the Prospect will be directed to set up a Notarize account. When a Prospect creates a Notarize account (an “Affiliate Customer”) and purchases Services through the Affiliate Link, subject to the exclusions provided in Section 2.2, such purchase(s) shall constitute a Qualified Transaction (each, a “Qualified Transaction”).
2.2 Exclusions. A Qualified Transaction will not include any purchases by Affiliate Customers who have previously accepted the Notarize General Terms or otherwise entered into any agreement, order form, and/or supplement with Notarize for provision of the Services.
3.1 Discount. Affiliate Customers are eligible to receive a discount (the “Discount”) to customer fees on certain transaction-based Services (the “Customer Fees”) as disclosed to Affiliate Partner at the time of accepting the Affiliate Partner Terms. Affiliate Partner may market such Discount to Prospects in a manner consistent with the terms of these Affiliate Partner Terms.
3.2 Rate Modifications. Notarize may change the Discount at any time, in its sole discretion. Affiliate Partner agrees to promptly update the Discount information on any website maintained by the Affiliate Partner.
3.3 Expenses. Notarize shall have no obligation to reimburse the Affiliate Partner for any expenses unless such expenses are approved by Notarize in writing and in advance of expenditure.
4. Responsibilities of Affiliate Partner.
4.1 Compliance with the Terms. The Affiliate Partner shall market the Services and solicit Prospects solely in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Affiliate Partner Terms. The Affiliate Partner shall market the Services only under the Notarize’s Marks (as defined below) and not under any other trade name, trademark, or logo.
4.2 Affiliate Partner Status. The Affiliate Partner shall, at all times, be an independent contractor of Notarize, and accordingly, it shall have no authority to bind Notarize to any contract or arrangement with any third party. At no time, shall the Affiliate Partner represent itself as an agent of Notarize.
4.3 Authority and Lawfulness. The Affiliate Partner shall obtain and keep active any and all permits, licenses, authorizations, permissions and/or certificates that may be required by the applicable governmental, regulatory, or administrative agency, or governing body, for every jurisdiction in which the Affiliate Partner carries on its business activities. The Affiliate Partner represents, warrants, and covenants to Notarize that it possesses the right and authority to enter into these Affiliate Partner Terms, and to exercise its rights and perform its obligations hereunder, including the right to provide Notarize with information about each Prospect. The Affiliate Partner shall at all times refrain from engaging in any illegal, unfair, or deceptive trade practices or unethical business practices whatsoever, whether with respect to the Services or otherwise. The Affiliate Partner shall, in connection with its dealings with any Prospects and in connection with the exercise of its rights and performance of its obligations under these Affiliate Partner Terms, take no action and make no payment in violation of, or which may cause Notarize or any of its affiliates or its or their directors, officers, employees or agents to be in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, or comparable laws in other jurisdictions (collectively, “Anti-Corruption Laws”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if the Affiliate Partner has taken or takes an action that could constitute a violation of Anti-Corruption Laws in its dealings with Prospects or otherwise connection with these Affiliate Partner Terms, Notarize may, at its sole option, immediately terminate these Affiliate Partner Terms without liability to Notarize.
4.4 Affiliate Partner Conduct. Affiliate Partner shall at all times during the Term promote and market the Services consistent with good business ethics, and in a manner that will reflect favorably on the Services and on the name, goodwill, and reputation of Notarize. Affiliate Partner shall not (a) make any misrepresentations regarding the Services, whether by act or omission; (b) engage in any deceptive practices with regard to the Services; (c) send unsolicited electronic messages to multiple unrelated recipients (“spamming”) in promoting the Service or otherwise to engage in any other form of mass electronic communications prohibited by law in connection with activities contemplated under these Affiliate Partner Terms; (d) make any representation, warranty or guarantee to any third party with respect to the Services that is inconsistent with (i) the Services, (ii) the published information describing the Services, or (iii) these Affiliate Partner Terms; or (e) take any action that has or could have the effect of improperly damaging the name, goodwill, reputation, or business of Notarize.
4.5 Prohibited Methods of Promotion. The Affiliate Partner agrees not to associate Notarize’s Marks (as defined below) with content that is unlawful in any manner, or which is otherwise harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, offensive, harassing, sexually explicit, violent, discriminatory, or otherwise objectionable in Notarize’s reasonable discretion. Upon Notarize’s request (which can be made for any or no reason), Affiliate Partner agrees to promptly remove from public view and delete any content or marketing materials that utilize Notarize’s Marks, or that reference Notarize or its Services.
5. Marketing Rights.
5.1 Right to Market.

Subject to the terms and conditions of these Affiliate Partner Terms, each Party hereby grants to the other Party a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, royalty-free, worldwide right and license, during the Term, to use and display such Party’s Marks solely for the purpose of promoting the Services as contemplated in these Affiliate Partner Terms. Each Party’s license to use the Marks of the other Party shall terminate upon the earlier of (i) the effective date of termination or expiration of these Affiliate Partner Terms, or (ii) immediately, in the event a Party breaches Section 4, 5, or 6 of these Affiliate Partner Terms. For further clarity, the Affiliate Partner shall only utilize Notarize’s Marks to market and promote the Services and to hold itself out as an ‘Affiliate Partner’ of Notarize in connection therewith. As used herein, “Marks” means each Party’s permitted trade names, trade dress, trademarks, service marks, commercial symbols, domain names, brands designs, logos and/or any other marks used by such Party. Notarize’s permitted Marks for purposes of these Affiliate Partner Terms will be sent to Affiliate Partner via email. Affiliate Partner will only use Notarize Marks sent to Affiliate Partner by Notarize.
5.3 Marketing Materials. As available, Notarize will provide the Affiliate Partner with marketing materials reasonably necessary for marketing Notarize and its Services to Prospects. The Affiliate Partner may not, without the prior written consent of Notarize, reproduce such materials, or independently create marketing materials that include Notarize’s Marks or imply an association or relationship by and between Notarize and the Affiliate Partner. If and to the extent the Affiliate Partner is expressly permitted hereunder by Notarize in writing to independently create marketing materials relating to Notarize or its Services, any such material shall, in each case, be subject to approval by Notarize before publication or other use.
6. Limitation of Rights.
6.1 Limited Marketing Rights. Except for the express rights provided in Section 5, the Affiliate Partner is granted no other right hereunder with respect to Notarize, the Services, or Notarize’s Marks.

8.1 Scope. This Section 8 governs the protections for Confidential Information that one party (“Receiving Party”) obtains concerning the other (“Disclosing Party”) in connection with the Affiliate Partner Terms. If the Affiliate Partner Terms conflicts with any separate non-disclosure agreement between the parties, the Affiliate Partner Terms prevails. “Confidential Information” means information obtained by a Receiving Party in connection with the Affiliate Partner Terms which concerns Disclosing Party’s business or operations that (a) is identified by a “CONFIDENTIAL” legend or similar legend of the Disclosing Party or (b) the Receiving Party knew or should have known should be treated as confidential given the circumstances of its disclosure, and includes inventions, specifications, drawings, models, samples, reports, plans, client lists, marketing materials, financial information, work-in-progress, forecasts, computer programs or documentation, know-how, strategies and all other nonpublic technical, financial, or business information. Notarize Confidential Information includes the Notarize Intellectual Property, and Affiliate Partner Confidential Information includes Affiliate Partner Intellectual Property.
8.2 Restriction on Use or Disclosure. Receiving Party will keep Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information confidential and protect it to the same degree Receiving Party protects its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care. Receiving Party may not disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any third party without the Disclosing Party’s prior written consent. Each party's Confidential Information may be disclosed only as reasonably necessary to satisfy the Receiving Party’s obligations under the Affiliate Partner Terms. Notarize may (a) retain Confidential Information as required to comply with applicable law or as otherwise permitted in the Affiliate Partner Terms and (b) use User Data (including Personal Information) in accordance with the Data Privacy Supplement.
8.3 Exclusions. Section 8.2 (Restriction on Use or Disclosure) does not apply to (a) information that the Receiving Party can show was in its possession prior to its disclosure under the Affiliate Partner Terms without any confidentiality obligation to the Disclosing Party, (b) information independently developed by Receiving Party without reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, (c) information which becomes generally known by the public other than through the fault of Receiving Party, or (d) information required by law or by the rules of any governmental or self-regulatory agency to be disclosed (provided that Receiving Party will use reasonable efforts to notify Disclosing Party of the disclosure requirement if legally permitted to do so).
8.4 Destruction and Retention. Except as required to provide the Services, to comply with applicable law, or as otherwise permitted in the Affiliate Partner Terms, promptly after termination of the Affiliate Partner Terms each party will either return or permanently destroy any of the other party’s Confidential Information in its possession or control. Upon request, a party will certify in writing to the destruction of Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the above, Receiving Party is entitled to retain Confidential Information in its archival or backup systems in accordance with its document retention policies, provided that Confidential Information retained this way will remain subject to the confidentiality obligations in the Affiliate Partner Terms throughout the period it is retained.
9. Intellectual Property.
9.1 Ownership of Marks. The Affiliate Partner acknowledges that Notarize (or its licensor, as applicable) is the owner of all rights in and to the Notarize Marks and all associated goodwill, and that neither these Affiliate Partner Terms nor use by the Affiliate Partner of the Notarize Marks under license shall transfer or convey any interests thereto in favor of the Affiliate Partner.

The Affiliate Partner will cooperate with, and assist Notarize, at Notarize’s expense, to secure, protect and maintain ownership rights in the Notarize Marks, including in the preparation, execution, and recording of legal documents to reasonably protect Notarize. To the extent permitted by applicable law, all rights not expressly granted hereunder are retained by the granting Party. All usage of the Notarize Marks under these Affiliate Partner Terms, inclusive of all goodwill, will inure to Notarize’s benefit.
9.2 Acknowledgement of Proprietary Rights. The Affiliate Partner acknowledges that Services, including any changes, new releases, new versions, modifications, enhancements, improvements, adaptations, translations, and derivative works thereof and thereto (as applicable), constitute proprietary information and data of Notarize (and may incorporate Notarize’s Trade Secrets). The ownership of all rights, title, and interest to all Notarize product and service offerings, including without limitation, the Services, and all of the Intellectual Property therein and thereto shall at all times remain vested exclusively in Notarize (or its licensors, as applicable), and Affiliate Partner shall not have any interest whatsoever in any portion thereof.

Additional terms may apply to the Affiliate Partner’s access to the Services, including without limitation and at Notarize’s discretion, Notarize’s standard terms of service. The Affiliate Partner shall promptly bring to the attention of Notarize any improper or wrongful use of or challenge to the Intellectual Property or any such threatened use or challenge of which the Affiliate Partner becomes aware in connection with its performance under these Affiliate Partner Terms.
10. Disclaimer of Warranties.

Notarize shall pay all damages and costs finally awarded against Affiliate Partner in connection with such claim or action. Notarize shall not be responsible for any cost, expense, or compromise incurred or made by the Affiliate Partner without Notarize’s prior written consent.
